Genevieve Pilat (02/1991 / New Jersey, USA)
It’s said that life is set in stone
Our own future already known
What careers will be given and whose heart’s smitten
Our lives already written.
Already written, it cannot change
Our lives in very limited range
Life for us must be provided
Our future has all been decided.
Yet life for me I must admit
Cannot be like theirs; I’ll never commit
For my life is like stone but more a clean slate
Where whatever I choose will decide my fate.
